Ghostpoet's concert

On February 14th, club Sinilind in Tallinn will host the double Mercury prize nominee, one of the most prominent British experimenter Ghostpoet.

In summer, Ghostpoet (Obaro Ejimiwe) returned with his fourth studio album "Dark Days & Canapés".

Being with Ghostpoet, the first thing that comes to mind is how totally different he is from his music. As a human being, Obaro (34) is rather phlegmatic and fair and there are many reasons behind that. First, he still can not believe that he is making money with something he did not even dream about. After graduating from Coventry University in 2004, and before issuing the debut album Cash & Carry Me Home in 2011, Obaro earned a living in a variety of customer service areas. Another reason, of course, is that his music for him is a place where to direct his darker feelings. "All those feelings are definitely going in there," laughs the man, adding that in any case, it's better if that darker side remains there.

In his music, Ghostpoet combines alternative hip hop with alternative rock by adding jazz and soul elements, 90s post-punk rhythms and post-hardcore elements with a small trip-hop additive. During his live career, Obras has been touring with Metronomy and Jamie Woon and has performed at such festivals as Glastonbury, Sónar, Latitude, Secret Garden Party and Bestival.
